Orthopedic Surgery

At NLVC we are able to perform many advanced surgical procedures in relation to orthopedic treatments such as congenital and acquired injuries of bones, joints and the spine utilizing bone plating, pinning and fixation devices and methodologies.

When a pet suffers orthopedic trauma, we manage it by procedures designed to stabilize fractures, treat soft tissue injuries and promote rapid recovery. A variety of minimally invasive techniques are employed where possible to promote rapid diagnosis and repair. These techniques include: percutaneous plating and fracture stabilization, which is made possible with intraoperative radiology, and arthroscopic evaluation and treatment of joint (shoulder, elbow, and knee) problems.

We promote the prevention, diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal injuries with the goal of optimizing the healing and recovery process to allow peak performance in athletes, working dogs and everyday pets.
